At 54g, the Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition is a very light mouse with a comfortable form factor and a 36,000dpi sensor. It's precise, smooth, and packs Bluetooth as well as 2.4GHz connectivity. You can also plug in a USB cable when the battery runs out.
- Connectivity: USB 2.0, Bluetooth 5.1, and RF 2.4GHz
- ROG AimPoint sensor, up to 36,000dpi
- 1,000Hz polling rate
- Battery life: 79 hours with default lighting, 90 without
Co-developed with FPS training program Aim Labs, the mouse features a smooth matte material, with tiny grooves at the sides for grip. I like that this mouse comes with a DPI switcher at the bottom, though that's not the best place if you want to quickly switch. But thankfully, you can customize a DPI button via the Armoury Crate software. However, you can only select the DPI switcher option, which cycles through your DPI options. The DPI up and down options are unavailable unlike Razer or Logitech.
While some ultra-light mice feature a honeycomb design, the 54g Harpe Ace comes with a full shell. I like this a lot better. There's less chance of my sweaty palms dripping into the internals. Eww, yes I know. While the mouse is usable by lefties, they won't be able to use the right side buttons. If you want more grip, the mouse also comes with grip tape. The mouse slides smoothly on my mousepad, and the buttons are great and clicky. The Harpe Ace's form makes using the claw grip natural, and I didn't feel tired after gaming with it for a period of time.
As an Aim Labs designed mouse, you're encouraged to use the Aim Labs software to analyze your preferred DPI as well as train. It does take some time to get analysed, but it will tell you your DPI sweet spot. Battery life for the Harpe Ace isn't the best, I found myself having to charge within a week. But you can always plug it into your PC, and use it as a normal wired mouse while charging. I did not test battery life on Bluetooth though, since it's not an ideal for gaming. And if you need to take this on the go, the mouse also comes with a slot for the USB dongle.
At S$169, the Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition is a pretty sweet ultra-light gaming mouse that's priced competitively. It's a lot cheaper than Razer's or Logitech's lightweight offerings, too. Get it from Asus, Shopee, or Lazada.
